The Christie works with Kenyan partners to improve cancer outcomes
The Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester is working with the Kenyan Ministry of Health and Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral and Research Hospital (KUTRRH), to help improve cancer outcomes in the country.
Christie chief executive Roger Spencer, medical director (strategy) Professor Chris Harrison and director of The Christie School of Oncology Professor Richard Cowan visited Kenya to agree a programme of work for the next five years.
Spencer said: “Following discussions with Kenya’s Ministry of Health and our visit to KUTRRH, I am delighted that we will be working with our Kenyan partners to develop their oncology services. This support will include access to education and training opportunities, procurement advice, capacity building support and the agreement of clinical protocols and guidelines.”
